Alex's Favorite Skillet Meal / #SundaySupper

Alex's Favorite Skillet Meal is one I make often, although most days he makes it himself. He likes to eat healthy, and he likes it to be quick and easy. This skillet meal is all of those things. I use brown rice in this meal, and I make it easy by cooking enough rice to last a few days. It refrigerates very well, and it makes the meal quicker to put together. For the meat, I use frozen turkey burgers. They taste great and are 93% lean. Anything more than that, and it doesn't seem to have enough taste. My sons career requires that he be fit, so this recipe does the job. Tasting good is an added bonus!

Spray a pan with cooking spray. Heat the skillet to medium and add the turkey burger. Sprinkle both sides with chicken seasoning. Cook burger until it reaches 160 degrees, flipping several times.
Chop the turkey burger into small bite size pieces, and let it continue to cook all the way through.
Add the rice to the skillet and stir as it heats up. 
Add the egg whites to the center of the pan. Mix the eggs into the turkey and rice as it cooks.

New Years Chicken Salad!

Happy New Years to everyone!! Today's recipe is the perfect light meal to start the new year off right. I wish I had started this years blogging off right also, but here is what happened.~I put this chicken salad recipe together. As I was just about done, I realized I had no cheese. I mean, you don't need cheese, but I think it adds a lot to the recipe. So I went to the store and picked up the cheese. Of course, you know I couldn't buy just cheese! Oh no, I had to spend 30 minutes, just browsing, picking up this and that, basically accomplishing nothing. I get home, and I make the sandwich, take the pictures, and begin to eat my creation. What's wrong?~Where is the avocado? I have to have the avocado on this sandwich. It's healthy. It's good for me. It has to be a part of this sandwich. Also, I love avocados, and I try to eat one everyday. I have to have the avocado.!!! So I make another sandwich. No problem, they are little, after all. And most of the pictures are of the ingredients being put together, so this can still work!!  I take the pictures of the avocado on the sandwich. They look really nice. I'm using a new camera I got from my husband for Christmas. I love this camera. It works great, and takes better pictures than my last camera! So, now I am downloading the pictures onto my computer from the card. Everything is good. I start to write this post. I go to put the pictures on my post~There are no pictures! What!!  What is happening? I find out that I have erased every picture having to do with this recipe!! I can't believe it! I just sit here dumbfounded for a few minutes. Then I figure, I better at least make another sandwich so I can photograph it! The good news? I downloaded Christmas pictures onto my computer at the same time, and I didn't lose any of those!! So, all was not lost! So, I am sorry for the lack of pictures for this post. I will try to make up for it next time!

This chicken salad recipe is one I came up with as an alternative to using mayo. I love everything in this recipe, and it is really good anytime of year. I hope you like it also!
